qam1The DRX-5571 combines the proven RF-to-IF performance of the SMR-5550 series receivers with FPGA-based demodulation and radio demultiplexing capability. This allows the receiver to process microwave signals having complex modulation and encoding schemes down to the underlying radio payload. Thus, the DRX-5571 provides a completely integrated system solution for performing capture, analysis, survey and collection of wideband digital radio RF signals.
